Mug Lace

This handmade mug Lace is inspired by the paintings of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit. Designer Sander Luske was inspired by the rich lace of Rembrandt's Marten & Oopjen, beautifully depicted by the 28-year-old Rembrandt. The pattern of this beautiful lace can be found on this porcelain mug. The mugs are made at Design X Ambacht (Craft), by people with a distance to the labor market.

About Marten and Oopjen

Marten Soolmans posed for Rembrandt van Rijn in 1643, to be forever immortalised. It was commonplace for wealthy people of that time to commission a portrait of themselves. However, a portrait by Rembrandt, the most sought-after painter of that time, was only reserved for the wealthiest. As an acquaintance of Rembrandt and the son of a wealthy Flemish immigrant, that owned a successful sugar factory in Amsterdam, Marten was lucky. Self-assured and dolled up as always, he posed. Oopjen already lived in Amsterdam. She came from a wealthy family of traders in grain and gunpowder, and her father wielded a lot of influence in Amsterdam. Oopjen wore a less-decorated robe, but her black silk dress and jewellery show the quality and richness of that time. The original portraits of Marten and Oopjen are on display in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
